Welp 2019 is pretty much a wrap and we’re getting closer to 2020.
Red Stick Revelry, Baton Rouge’s official and largest New Year’s Eve celebration, now in its seventh year, will be the place to be tonight to bring in the new year.
The event kicks off at 8:00 pm on the Crest Stage in City Hall Plaza, adjacent to City Hall.
The celebration will conclude when the red stick drops at midnight in the North Boulevard Town Square with a fireworks show.
Two all-new 20-minute laser light shows, choreographed to music and even larger than last year’s production, will be projected on a screen from The Crest stage and over the audience, at 9:30 pm and again at 11:00 pm.
Something new this year is an all-new laser light show featuring eight high-powered 3-D lasers that revelers can see when the Red Stick drops.
“Our annual Red Stick Revelry allows our City-Parish to gather and reflect on all of the great strides we made in 2019,” said Mayor Broome. “I look forward to being surrounded by our community as we ring in a new year of peace, prosperity and progress for Baton Rouge.”
In years past, Red Stick Revelry has brought out an estimated 20,000 people.
You can also celebrate in style at the Hilton Baton Rouge, with a 1920s themed party.
Several bars and restaurants will hold their own parties including Tsunami Sushi, the Bengal Tap Room, and Happy’s Irish Pub.
